[ 13 ] Despite that, she knows well that she can not constantly swing Eren in his decisions, and she makes a point to follow Eren to about everywhere he goes and stick by whatever concluding decisions he makes, just then that she can be around to help him out when he is in worry. [ 13 ] The sole reason she enlisted in the military and joined the Scout Regiment after her gradation was to keep an eye on Eren, despite the fact that she rightfully wished to live out the rest of her days in relative peace within the Walls alongside him. She besides takes Eren ‘s opinion badly, so much so that when he once said that her haircloth was besides long, she immediately had it cut, even though Jean had merely commented that it looked beautiful. [ 7 ] Despite all her subterfuge loyalty, Mikasa is quite stoic and healthy. Her will is signally firm, and she is rarely seen to lose her cool or be at a personnel casualty of what to do, no count how bleak a situation seems to be. flush when she believed Eren to be dead, outwardly she managed to remain indeed calm that only Armin could tell that she was battling with the pain of losing Eren.

When she found him alive and well, she completely lost her composure and cry tears of joy. Mikasa ‘s attachment with Eren is undoubtedly her most significant relationship and one that defines Mikasa. For Eren ‘s sake, Mikasa has expressed a diverseness of emotions such as compassion, concern, wrath, embarrassment, sadness, and softheartedness. She has openly cry tears of respite at his safety, and developed revengeful grudges towards those who harm him.

While Eren grapples with Reiner, Mikasa takes advantage of Hange ‘s hypnotism and cuts through the unwrap backs of Reiner ‘s knees, far weakening his ability to battle. however, Reiner unexpectedly roars, signaling Bertholdt ‘s Colossal Titan to fall down on exceed of him and Eren. [ 17 ]

After the Armored Titan is immobilized by the diaphanous act of them, Erwin calls for the soldiers to charge in and recover Eren. [ 6 ]
Mikasa rides her horse at a gallop, weaving around the intimidating number of Titans between her and Eren, and launches herself at Bertholdt, but she misses and sees Eren watching her in panic. Her trajectory carries her straight into another Titan that grabs her hard enough to crush her rib.

There, a baby buggy comes crashing through and apparently kidnaps Eren and Historia, though the kidnapped victims are actually Jean and Armin in disguise. [ 36 ]
On the roof above the kidnappers ‘ hideout, Mikasa talks to Levi and tells him that Armin ‘s disguise is on the brink of being uncovered. Levi notes that the kidnappers are apparently amateur and leaves the site in her hands. [ 36 ] As the lead kidnapper and his henchmen enter the warehouse where Jean and Armin are being held, they notice the guard is missing.

After a concert crusade, they manage to force the Anti-Personnel Control Squad into a retirement. [ 42 ] Mikasa and the rest of Levi ‘s police squad are abruptly stopped by a brilliantly news bulletin deep in the cavern. She realizes that it means a Titan has transformed and worries over Eren. The police squad arrives in time for Mikasa to catch Historia, who had been flung back against the Wall from the wedge of Rod Reiss ‘ transformation into a Titan. Mikasa asks if she is okay before taking the keys to Eren ‘s chains from her and throwing them to Levi so he can free him. The ceiling begins caving in, trapping the squad. Eren apologizes for being useless, but Levi and Historia goad him into taking matters into his own hands. He gets up and grabs a bottle labeled “ Armor ” that had fallen out of Rod ‘s bag and breaks it between his tooth as he transforms into a Titan.

Eren complains that she should not treat him like an old homo. While the soldiers eat and celebrate the success of the Titan guillotine fashioned by Hange, Mikasa remains silent throughout most of the conversation until Eren begins to remember the day he ate his founder. Recognizing where his mind is going, Mikasa stops him, saying that he should finish eating before talking. He does not stop trying to remember though, and suddenly he realizes that the homo that his church father met the day Wall Maria fell was their old commanding officer, Keith Sadies. They then decide to pay him a sojourn. The follow day, Eren, Mikasa, Armin, and others travel to the training camp to talk with Keith. They talk inside a modest firm and Keith tells them everything he knows : how he met Grisha 20 years ago outside the Walls, his relationship with him and Eren ‘s mother during those years, and how he was present in the night Grisha injected Eren with the Titan serum but did not see anything, and at the conclusion, does not know anything about Grisha ‘s secrets. [ 46 ] sometime late, the soldiers have a great dinner to celebrate finishing the preparations for retaking Wall Maria. Mikasa is present, eating and watching Sasha ‘s rampage and Jean and Eren ‘s crusade. even when Jean blames Eren for the dangers that he puts Mikasa in, she calmly decides not to intervene .
When the fight ends, Mikasa sits outside with Eren and Armin. After seeing a soldier that reminds the three of Hannes, she wonders if retaking Wall Maria will make things return to how they were. They agree that they can bring back those days, but some things are now constantly lost. however, Armin not only thinks this : he considers that being partially of the Scout Regiment will allow them to see the ocean and the whole populace. At sunset the pursuit sidereal day, the Scout Regiment is quick to go to Shiganshina District. After hearing the cheers of the citizens, Erwin starts the operation and Mikasa rides along Squad Levi towards Shiganshina. [ 47 ] Mikasa stands atop the Wall with Eren and Armin, as a guillotine-like device crushes the head of a Titan below. She thinks back at a time and invest with the two, where they reminisced about the old days before the decrease of Wall Maria. She recalls another time during the Struggle for Trost, when Armin beginning informed her of Eren ‘s apparent end. Mikasa experienced a vision of an understudy reality concisely after. back in the introduce, Mikasa believes that Eren will be able to reclaim Wall Maria, kill every Titan, and see the ocean one day. She acknowledges to herself that no one can stop his destiny, but resolves to be by his side no matter where he goes. [ 48 ] The scouts are now walking within a mountaintop forest, nearing dawn. Mikasa leads Eren ‘s sawhorse, despite his complaints, as the others encourage him to rest deoxyadenosine monophosphate a lot as possible for his approaching duties. Jean spots a nearby Titan and Hange promptly orders the group to illuminate the area with their fragments of the Reiss Chapel cave. She claims that it is dozing away and the group moves on. A few moments after this, Mikasa begins to recognize the sphere they are in and claims that she collected firewood there once ahead. Eren and Armin besides begin to recognize the area and Mikasa notes that she can hear the river stream. The group then finds themselves near the Shiganshina District and race in on horses. Erwin orders that all soldier switch to ODM gear and rush the independent gate, covered by their hoods to distract any watch enemies. Mikasa is among the soldiers surrounding the gate as Eren flies up above to transform .
After Eren successfully seals the trap in Wall Maria, Mikasa retrieves him from his Titan form, and returns him to the top of the Wall. Giving Eren her clothe, Mikasa accompanies the stay of her squad as they return to meet up with Erwin and the rest of the Scout Regiment. however, before they can return, they see a signal flare fired by Erwin and stop to await far orders. From her status, Mikasa and her comrades are able to observe as Reiner reveals himself to be hiding inside the Wall, and the Beast Titan and his army happen to engage the Scout Regiment. [ 49 ] As Eren and Reiner fight in their colossus forms, Mikasa and her squad take up positions around them and wait for a gamble to attack. Once Eren has maneuvered Reiner into a section of township with tall buildings, Mikasa and Hange use their new Thunder Spears to blind him. After her teammates destroy the armor covering Reiner ‘s nape, the entire police squad moves in and destroys Reiner ‘s nape with their thunder Spears. [ 50 ] Afterward, Mikasa attempts to console a dismay Armin, but is interrupted by Reiner ‘s Titan form, which begins roaring. [ 51 ] After Armin reveals to Hange that Bertholdt is approaching, Mikasa and the respite of the Scouts retreat from Reiner ‘s immediate vicinity, in order to escape being caught in the gust of Bertholdt ‘s transformation into the Colossal Titan. When Bertholdt chooses not to transform in order to check on Reiner, Armin attempts to negotiate with him. however, while Armin is attempting to talk with Bertholdt, Mikasa takes the opportunity to attack him from behind. She is abortive in killing him, and comments as he flees on his drastic change in personality. [ 51 ]

While Mikasa and Armin are returning to their comrades ‘ position, Bertholdt transforms, and they are forced to hide behind a construction to shield themselves from the good time. They then regroup with the rest of Squad Levi and inform them that Hange ‘s police squad has apparently been destroyed by the bang. [ 51 ]
As Bertholdt begins destroying Shiganshina, Mikasa observes that he does not seem to know their placement. Pointing out that they will not have time to look for any survivors from Hange ‘s squad, Mikasa suggests that Armin take the lead of their squad, though Armin then gives Jean command. After retreating from Bertholdt, Eren tries to get Bertholdt ‘s care, but he ignores them. Deciding that they will have to engage Bertholdt directly, Mikasa takes Conny ‘s Thunder Spear and prepares to engage Bertholdt. While Eren attacks Bertholdt directly, Mikasa and the rest of the team spread out to try to find an opening to attack Bertholdt. however, before they can act, Bertholdt kicks Eren into the side of Wall Maria, to Mikasa ‘s horror. denim assures her that Eren is not abruptly, and that their chief concern at the moment is taking down Bertholdt. Jean formulates a plan for he, Conny and Sasha to draw Bertholdt ‘s care while Mikasa strikes his nape with the Thunder Spears. Just as Mikasa moves in to strike Bertholdt, he uses his steam to prevent her from reaching him. When Mikasa lands on a roof where the others already are, she is visibly injured. She explains that a piece of the Thunder Spears hit her, but the wound is not deeply. She asks arminius if he believes there is any possible way for them to fight back, but he sees none. They are startled by the audio of a sign of the zodiac exploding behind them. From it emerges Reiner, his lead in full regenerated. [ 52 ] While Armin and Eren choose to confront the Colossal Titan, Mikasa agrees to join the others in an attack against the Armored Titan. As Reiner begins to run to Eren, Mikasa sends one of her Thunder Spears into his knees, crippling him. She notices the Colossal Titan in the distance beginning to emit much steam, causing her to worry about Eren and Armin for a here and now before she returns her focus to the attack on Reiner. While the others proceed with a plan they devised to defeat Reiner, Sasha is injured and misses her thunder Spear attack on the hinge of the Armored Titan ‘s jaw .
Mikasa realizes that since she has the alone Thunder Spear left and Reiner ‘s jaw has not been completely perturb, she can not proceed with the plan to blow Reiner ‘s body out of his nape by sending a big h Spear into his mouth. As she considers the situation, Hange returns to the conflict, sending their own thunder Spear at Reiner and destroying his other jaw hinge. With the plan nowadays on the scepter of success, Mikasa jumps into Reiner ‘s mouth, ordering him to get out as she sends her final thunder Spear into his mouth, defeating the Armored Titan. [ 53 ] While Hange interrogates an hurt Reiner, Mikasa begins treating Jean ‘s injuries. Although Hange wants to plainly execute Reiner, Jean convinces them to keep him alive long enough to steal his powers with the Titan injection. Hange orders Mikasa to go retrieve the serum from Levi, and to send up a signal flare if there is a change of plans, so that Hange will know to kill Reiner. When Mikasa arrives at Levi ‘s military position, she is horrified to find a hysteric Eren trying to keep a badly-injured Armin animated. As Levi agrees to use the Titan serum to save Armin ‘s life, Mikasa shoots a flare to notify Hange that Reiner must be killed. however, Levi ‘s mind is swayed by the arrival of another soldier, who reveals that Erwin is besides mortally wounded. Horrified by Levi ‘s announcement that he will save Erwin and not Armin, Mikasa draws her blade and begins to advance upon him .
As Levi punches Eren in the face, Mikasa pins him to the rooftop and draws her sword to his neck. Noticing how tire out Levi is, she attempts to grab the Titan serum from his hand, as Levi reminds her that without Erwin ‘s strength, humanness can never defeat the Titans. When Floch approaches her, she flips her blade in order to strike him with the blunt side of the sword and knock him down, only to be stopped by Hange. As they both struggle, Mikasa finally capitulates, remembering a happier clock time when she, Eren and Armin were children, as tears roll down her face. After Armin returns to his human form, Mikasa, along with Eren, foot him up off the ground as she cries tears of gladden to see he is alive and well. [ 54 ] Atop the Wall, after Eren informs Armin of what has happened after the struggle ended, Hange orders Mikasa, Levi and Eren to continue surveying and head for the Jaeger family ‘s house. Upon reaching the basement ‘s door, Eren tries to open the doorway ‘s lock and is surprised that the key does not fit. Levi kicks down the door and they enter the room .
They find it had been set up to appear equally a lot as possible, a common repair ‘s position, but after promote probe Mikasa discovers a keyhole on a engage draftsman in the desk, which the winder unlocks. The drawer seems empty at beginning, but Levi notices the delusive bottom and under it they find three hidden books kept integral with respective preservatives. Mikasa and Eren open the inaugural book, and within it they find an uncannily realistic portrayal of Grisha standing beside a blue-eyed woman and a child. On the back of it, Grisha had written that what they are holding is called a “ photograph ” and that humanity has not perished. [ 55 ] Upon returning to the Walls, Eren and Mikasa are put in prison cells for several days as punishment for their actions against Levi. [ 56 ] During this time, Armin visits them and logs Eren ‘s memories as he retells them of many events in his father Grisha ’ s liveliness that matched up with what was found in the books in his basement. Among these memories is a conversation between him and Eren Kruger, an allied spy to the Restorationists .
During this conversation, Kruger tells Grisha that anyone who has inherited the power of the Titans will merely live for 13 years, as no one with this world power can out live its original owner Ymir Fritz who founded the state of Eldia and all its subjects. Upon hearing this disclosure, Mikasa becomes very lower and denies its validity, knowing that Armin and Eren only have a short-change phone number of years left to live if it is true. After Hange, the current commander, puts excessively much atmospheric pressure on Eren in the following prison cell, Levi ordered them free. Mikasa leaves her cell, having lost weight after not eating in her department of state of low. Mikasa attends a military meet on how to proceed with the findings of the basement in Trost. She sits mutely as Hange deliberates their interpretation of the events, but is shocked and confused when Eren shouts all of a sudden during the meet. [ 57 ] The nine exist Scouts subsequently attend a ceremony to be honored for their success in the Battle of Shiganshina District. Before the start of the ceremony, Eren gets into an argument with Floch over Armin being saved over Commander Erwin. When she attempts to calm Eren down, Floch commends Mikasa over her acting like an adult and giving up in saving Armin. This statement surprises and upsets her. She would subsequently go on to be commemorated for her courage in Shiganshina with a decoration. approximately a year after the Struggle for Trost, after the Executioner from Hell has eradicated all Titans within Wall Maria and Shiganshina has been repopulated, the Scout Regiment was able to hold an dispatch beyond the Walls for the first time in six years. Mikasa ventures out on hogback, beyond the Walls for the first time. After following a change shape Titans trail, the Scouts reach the edge of Paradis Island, and behold the ocean .
The Scouts dismount their horses, discard their boots, and head to the beachfront. Mikasa is startled by an ocean brandish, but goes on to give Armin a strong smile. She listens as Armin begins to gleefully talk with Eren over the huge size of the ocean. however, these felicitous moments fade as Eren solemnly states that the ocean does not hold exemption, and that enemies are still awaiting them across the early side. [ 58 ] One year after retaking Shiganshina, Mikasa goes with the other members of the Scouts to intercept a sketch ship sent from Marley. Like the others present, Mikasa is surprised to see two sailors rebel and force the others to surrender. While watching the two meet with Levi and Hange, Mikasa ponders what their design might be while trying to wake up Sasha. An alliance is formed between Paradis and the group of rebels, calling themselves the Anti-Marleyan Volunteers, and preparations and training begin for the at hand war with Marley. While at a fuel range, Mikasa and Armin both agree that it is good to see both sides are getting along with each early, but are visibly trouble by Eren ‘s imperativeness that Paradis must launch a preemptive rape on Marley to buy themselves more time to prepare. [ 59 ] Mikasa is among the Scouts that meet with an ambassador from the state of Hizuru named Kiyomi Azumabito. At a suffer between the two parties, Kiyomi displays the crest of the Azumabito kin and Mikasa is shaken to see it is the lapp as the tattoo on her wrist. After some prompt by Eren, Mikasa shares it, saying that her mother gave it to her as a girl and to pass it down to her children later on. Kiyomi describes how both Hizuru and Eldia were allies farseeing ago and laments that the nation suffered after the Great Titan War. Kiyomi finishes by stating that Mikasa is the descendant of Hizuru ‘s lost godhead and the hope for their state. Although Mikasa is overwhelmed by this information, Historia is ecstatic, believing that Hizuru will be more uncoerced to trust Paradis due to Mikasa ‘s linage .
Months late, after spending the day build train tracks, Eren mentions that he only has approximately five years left to live and begins to consider who he should pass his Titan abilities to. Mikasa immediately volunteers herself but Jean advises against it ; Mikasa is half-Asian, and they do not know what the Ackermann kin is ( if they are Subjects of Ymir or not ), so she might not evening be able of becoming a Titan at all. As the others volunteer themselves besides, Eren decides to not choose any of them due to valuing their friendship and not wanting to have any of their lives forcibly cut unretentive on his behalf. [ 60 ] Mikasa is one of respective Scouts who journey to Marley ‘s mainland to meet with Kiyomi. When Eren leaves in the middle of the meeting, Mikasa and the rest of the 104th graduates go searching for him. Mikasa finds him looking at a bunch of refugee tents. At first, she begins to reprimand him for going external alone when he is their enemies ‘ most desire target, but then she realizes that he is looking at the male child who stole from Sasha and Levi early in the day, a well as the boy ‘s syndicate. Eren tells her that these tents are where these people live after losing their homes to war. The people here are like the two of them. One day biography stopped being convention and everything was taken away .
He asks Mikasa why she cares about him so much, whether it is because he saved her when they were kids, or because they are family. Mikasa stammers at first but then replies that he is kin. The rest of their friends arrive and interrupt their conversation, disappointing Eren. The group end up having dinner with the family exist near the Azumabito estate, spending the night drink and bacchanalian. The soldiers sit in on a hear between politicians to discuss Eldian mistreatment. They are horrified when the speakers begin calling for the hate being shown towards Eldians to be redirected towards the Eldians survive on Paradis. As they are listening, Mikasa notices Eren restfully depart from the merging. [ 61 ] As Eren begins his assault on the Marleyans, Mikasa joins the Scout Regiment in retrieving him and attacking Liberio. During the struggle between Eren and the War Hammer Titan Mikasa attacks the War Hammer from behind, launching eight Thunder Spears into its nape. Mikasa lands on the shoulder of the decapitate Attack Titan and asks Eren to come home plate. Mikasa demands to know if Eren realizes the horror he has committed, killing civilians and children. Eren does not answer the interrogate and rather points out that the War Hammer Titan is still alive. Mikasa is shocked to see the Titan standing up, since she is sure that she destroyed its nape wholly, and the War Hammer Titan then fires a expressway of its hardened means towards them. Mikasa quickly grabs Eren and flees away of the Attack Titan ‘s body, barely avoiding getting hit. Eren comes up with a plan to defeat and eat the War Hammer Titan, and asks Mikasa to distract the enemy enough for him to enact it .
Mikasa re-engages the War Hammer Titan while Eren transforms back into the Attack Titan and captures the War Hammer ‘s original, who was hiding under the crunch encased in crystal and controlling the War Hammer remotely via a long cord. The Jaw Titan tries to ambush Eren but is fended off by Levi, [ 10 ] allowing Mikasa to intercept him and knock him down off the wall with a big h Spear. however, she is forced to break off her attack by the arrival of the Cart Titan. [ 62 ] While the Scouts and Warriors clash, Mikasa attempts to destroy the War Hammer ‘s quartz glass with a Thunder Spear, but it fails to even crack. Staying close to Eren, she watches as he unsuccessfully tries to consume the crystal. The Jaw Titan attempts to charge Eren but Mikasa intervenes, drawing her blades to engage it .
Mikasa swings her swords at the Jaw Titan but it lunges out of the way and goes for the Attack Titan. She follows it and tries to provide hold and as it momentarily breaks off from the attack, Mikasa notes that this stream Jaw Titan is much faster than Ymir ‘s Titan. It then switches its focus from Eren to an incoming airship that serves as the Scouts ‘ method of retreat from the struggle. Mikasa anticipates the Jaw Titan going after the airship and manages to catch it off guard, slicing through both legs. [ 62 ] After Eren defeats Reiner ‘s Titan, Mikasa flies to Eren and convinces him to come back home. She then leaves with Eren and flies toward the incoming airship .
After they dining table the airship, Levi kicks Eren ascribable to his insubordination, infuriating Mikasa ; she tries to protest, but is stopped by Armin. The four meet with Zeke and Yelena at another part of the ship. A commotion ensues outside and Conny and Jean enter the room, carrying two get stowaways. jean announces that one of them shot Sasha and she is improbable to survive, prompting Mikasa and Armin to run out of the room to see her. Sasha dies from her injuries, with Mikasa and Armin futilely trying to wake her. [ 63 ] After the Scouts return to Paradis Island, Mikasa attends the funeral service held for the eight soldiers lost during the battle in Liberio. Afterward, she remains by Sasha ‘s dangerous to continue mourning. She is interrupted by the sound of Conny and Jean saving Niccolo from being harassed by a military Police Brigade soldier. As Nicolo pays his respects to Sasha, Mikasa informs him of how she died. [ 59 ] When Conny mentions they should be prepared to kill Eren if he sides with their foe, Mikasa opposes him but he glares at her and asks if she would side with the foe besides. Mikasa says no, but claims that Eren even cares for them and tries to convince them his holocene behavior is reflective of that. The others do not believe her and Jean brings up the fact that despite this, Eren placid had no trouble forcing them to fight and that resulted in Sasha ‘s death. Mikasa is far shocked when Conny reveals that Eren laughed when assure that Sasha had died. Armin decides they should prepare for a worst-case scenario to have person turn and kill Eren if he proves to be a menace ; Mikasa protests that he inactive has several years left, but Armin states they will decide what happens after confirming where Eren stands. [ 60 ] After a group of Scout Regiment recruits leak the newsworthiness of Eren ‘s apprehension to the populace and are found out, Mikasa attends the hear that Hange conducts with them. After hearing them out, Hange orders the perpetrators jailed for their actions, and Mikasa escorts one of them, Louise, to her cell. Louise tries to justify Eren ‘s actions and convert Mikasa to help release him, but Mikasa just cuts her off and leaves. [ 64 ] Mikasa meets up with Armin and notifies him that Dhalis Zachary has agreed to see them. Both of them are stunned to hear Zachary refuse their request to see Eren and Mikasa is taken aback by the possibility that Zeke Jaeger has been controlling Eren ‘s demeanor and movements anterior to the attack on Liberio .
After being sent aside, Mikasa notices several Military Police soldiers enter Zachary ‘s office and decides to eavesdrop ; Armin tries to persuade her not to, but she insists on knowing what commission the Scout Regiment is going. abruptly, she grabs Armin and dives aside just as an explosion goes off in Zachary ‘s agency. They both go outside and see Zachary ‘s dismember cadaver from the blast ; Mikasa is speechless about who could have been behind the assassination as the crowd of protesters chant in approval. During an hand brake meet by the other heads of the Military, Mikasa hears Armin testify that he observed several recruits from the Scouts leave the area and were most likely responsible for the explosion. She is shocked to hear Eren has escaped confinement and blocked his escape route then no one could follow him. Mikasa accompanies Armin, Hange and Onyankopon as the military lead a search for the renegades, staring blankly ahead and unresponsive to Armin as he tries to calm her .
late, Mikasa attends another meet to plan the military ‘s response to the emergence of the rebels, nowadays dubbed the “ Jaegerists. ” As the meet concludes, Kiyomi pulls Mikasa aside to ask her to consider fleeing to the Azumabito ‘s embark if the need arises. Mikasa thanks her for her consideration, though makes clear that she sees herself as an Eldian foremost, and intends to see the fortune of the island that raised her. furthermore, after Kiyomi tells her of the Azumabito ‘s shaky political situation, Mikasa says that this is all the more situation to not rely on the family. Despite Mikasa ‘s words, Kiyomi states that no count what happens with the island, the class will protect her. Heading outside with the other Scout veterans, Mikasa briefly squabbles with Conny over Eren ‘s connection to the Jaegerists, and over being suspected. Believing Zeke to have a secret outline, the Scouts ride out to a jumper cable ; a restaurant employing Marleyan workers. [ 65 ] After arriving for their probe and meeting up with Nicolo, Mikasa and the others wait in a backroom for him to finish his work. A short while late, Armin calls everybody into the independent room, where Nicolo is attacking the run-away Warrior candidates over the murder of Sasha .
finally, when Artur Braus ‘s understand attitude calms the situation polish, Mikasa goes over to the female campaigner to check on her wounds. on the spur of the moment, another unseasoned girl named Kaya attempts to stab the candidate, however Mikasa blocks the attack. Mikasa and Armin take her into the adjacent board as the Braus family cry. In a discriminate room, Mikasa sits with Gabi and Armin ; when asked by Gabi why she saved her, Mikasa does not give any reason why when Eren by chance appears. Before they can say anything, Eren mutely holds up his right hand which is bleeding. Understanding Eren ‘s intent if they do not comply, Mikasa and Armin obey his request to sit down at the mesa. [ 66 ] Eren claims that he is release but Mikasa argues that he is being controlled by Zeke .
She mentions how Eren was not like this ever ahead and brings up how he saved her from being kidnapped all those years ago, pointing to the scarf Eren gave her. Eren glares at her and hard reminds her to keep her hands on the mesa. Stunned by this reaction, Mikasa mutely complies. Eren reveals that he has learned about the Ackermann family from Zeke, claiming the kin can manifest the office of the Titans while remaining in human kind and will activate in the bearing of a person recognized as the baron. He muses that her instincts as an Ackermann are the reason Mikasa has stuck by him for so hanker. Mikasa tries to protest but Eren remarks that Ackermanns besides suffer austere headaches due to their true selves fighting the cheer to protect the horde. Recalling Mikasa ‘s headaches, Eren claims that the veridical Mikasa died the sidereal day he rescued her from her kidnappers. Mikasa is ineffective to speak and starts to break down and exclaim when Eren remarks he has always hated her, calling her nothing more than an obedient slave. Armin tries to assault Eren but Mikasa swiftly blocks his approach and slams him into the table, to their common shock. As Eren starts beating Armin, Mikasa continues to cry and begs him to stop. Eren then orders her, Armin and Gabi taken away to Shiganshina District .
Afterwards, Mikasa and Armin are relocated to a prison cell alongside the early captives. [ 67 ] During her captivity, Jean inquires more from Armin about the two ‘s holocene meet with Eren but Mikasa rebuffs the remarks not wanting Armin to explain. They are then interrupted by Yelena who came to explain Zeke ‘s on-key intentions. After Yelena ‘s passing, a battle breaks out on the roof of the military ‘s headquarters. [ 68 ] As the fight on the rooftop ensues, Mikasa and the other prisoners wonder what the strait overhead them was about. Onyankopon arrives concisely to release them, requesting that all imprison soldiers join the fight against Marley to keep Eren condom. [ 69 ] As they head to put on sets of ODMG, Mikasa and Armin discuss what Eren ‘s motivations might be for pushing them away. Although Armin is diffident of Eren ‘s intentions, he assures Mikasa that Eren was lying about her Ackermann genes, and plainly used his cognition of her headaches to give his lie credenza .
As she is suiting up, Mikasa is visited by Louise, who tries to bond with her. Mikasa ignores the daughter, and departs for the struggle field ; before leaving, she folds up the scarf given to her by Eren and leaves it behind. [ 70 ] During the struggle, Mikasa goes with Armin to the Cart Titan while Jean and Conny go to help Eren against Marley ‘s Titans. suddenly, a brassy shout is heard throughout the zone ; Mikasa sees several flashes of light and realize that Zeke has transformed the involve soldiers into Pure Titans. Reaching the top of the rampart where the Cart Titan is stationed, Mikasa saves Armin after he destroys the Titan weapon cannon atop its back. Cutting through the soldiers accompanying it, Mikasa then glares at Pieck. She is then charged by the Cart Titan and angles out of roll while preparing to strike it. [ 71 ] Before they can engage, however, Eren begins the Rumbling and Wall Maria begins to crumble underneath the combatants .
Mikasa and Armin are horrified to see the Titans inside emerging. As the Wall Titans begin to march, Armin assumes that Eren is using the Founding Titan to send the Wall Titans to attack the forces amassing in Marley to attack Paradis. however, he is perplex to see that all of Wall Maria is crumbling, telling Mikasa that an attack on Marley should have lone required the Titans contained in Shiganshina ‘s forbidden Wall. They are interrupted by Eren, who begins speaking to all Subjects of Ymir through the Founding Titan. To Mikasa ‘s jolt, Eren declares that he is going to be using the Founding Titan to completely exterminate all life outside Paradis Island. [ 72 ] Mikasa and Armin regroup with Jean and Conny, who have Falco with them. Noticing their boyfriend soldiers being attacked by Titans, Armin and Jean go to help them but Mikasa points out that they need to deal with Falco. Jean suggests feeding the boy to one of the Titans while Conny argues that his mother should be allowed to eat Falco. Armin does not want to sacrifice Falco at all, arguing that killing him will merely breed more animosity with the Warriors. The group is attacked by a Titan, allowing Conny to flee with Falco before the group can stop him .
The group returns to the military headquarters where they rally the soldiers trapped inside to help them kill the Titans which have amassed around the build. After clearing out the first gear wave of Titans, Mikasa ‘s group lies in wait at the build while more soldiers lead the remaining Titans to the building to be killed, subsequently clearing all of them. When fight had ended, Artur Braus brings Mikasa and Armin to meet with Gabi, who begs them to return Falco to her. Armin explains what has happened to Falco and Gabi urgently tries to argue that Eren can return Conny ‘s beget to convention with the Founding Titan in arrange to spare Falco. Gabi argues that he was able of evening removing the Armored Titan ‘s hardened skin, prompting Mikasa to ask Gabi about Reiner ‘s whereabouts. [ 3 ] Mikasa tries to convince Armin not to pursue Conny to Ragako, but is abortive. As Armin is leaving Mikasa tries to ask Armin what they will do about Eren, causing Armin to lash out at her for not focusing on more press issues that they have. He then tells her that Erwin would have had better judgment in that moment, and departs. As Armin leaves, Mikasa notices that her scarf joint is no longer where she left it. Mikasa by and by finds Jean and Floch with a dead Volunteer and demands to know what happened. Floch claims to be acting on Eren ‘s behalf to wipe out any resentment Paradis might have. Floch attempts to recruit Jean but Mikasa interrupts him, demanding to know what happened to Hange and Levi. Floch claims, to her shock, that Zeke killed them. [ 73 ] The next morning, Mikasa finds Louise in the hospital wear her missing scarf joint. Louise claims that Eren told her to throw the scarf away, so she decided to take it rather, prompting Mikasa to demand that she return it immediately .
late, Mikasa and Jean are contacted by Hange, who informs the two of the design to join forces with Marley to stop Eren. Mikasa agrees to it. After receiving the signal from Jean to leave the military headquarter, Mikasa departs with her comrades. On their way out of Shiganshina, they pick up and join forces with Annie and Reiner. [ 74 ] That night, the aggregate forces of Marley and Paradis contribution a meal as they discuss how to oppose Eren. As tensions run high between the Scouts and the Warriors, Annie demands to know if the Scouts will be able to kill Eren if no other option is presented .
Mikasa states that killing Eren is not the only way to stop him, confirming Annie ‘s suspicions that Mikasa and her friends would try to stop the Warriors from killing Eren. Mikasa steps up to confront Annie, but she defuses the position by assuring Mikasa that she has no emergence with Eren living if he can be convinced to stop the Rumbling. The future day the group travels to Paradis ‘ harbor with the purpose of using the Azumabito kin ‘s airship to pursue Eren, only to find that the harbor has been occupied by Jaegerists. [ 75 ] As the group gears up for a confrontation Annie suggests launching an all-out attack and Mikasa reminds her that they can not risk getting the Azumabito killed in the crossfire. The discussion is interrupted by Hange, who reveals to everyone ‘s horror that Eren and his Titans have apparently already reached Marley .
The group settles on a plan to try to trick Floch into handing over the Azumabito mechanics so that they can operate the ship. Floch rather tries to execute the Azumabito, necessitating Mikasa to intervene and save them. Mikasa helps Kiyomi disarm Floch and his guards, but Floch manages to escape and alert the other Jaegerists to their fire. Mikasa, Hange, Jean and Magath lead Kiyomi and the mechanics to the basement of the build they were being kept in and take shelter there so that Annie and Reiner can transform and fight without gamble of collateral damage. [ 76 ] After it is decided that the flying boat will be taken to Odiha so that it can be prepped for escape under more friendly conditions, Mikasa brings newsworthiness of the change to Annie and Reiner and instructs them to protect the Azumabito servicing crew. As Mikasa engages the Jaegerists, she is alerted by Hange about reinforcements arriving by train but is shocked to see the trail derail itself. once the boat is ready to depart, Mikasa helps carry an hurt Annie onboard. Aboard the embark, Mikasa and Jean are seen holding back Annie, who is in distress, after Hange reveals that Liberio can not be saved from the Rumbling anymore. [ 77 ] En road to Odiha, Mikasa ponders whether Eren has truly changed, coming to realize that he may have always been this way, and wonders what she saw in him. She recalls the time the Scouts visited Marley and wonders how things might have played out if she had given Eren a different answer when he asked what he is to her. [ 61 ]
In the year 844, Dr. Jaeger and his son, Eren, visit the Ackermann family for a checkup on Mikasa ‘s pregnant mother. Eren is introduced to Mikasa and the two begin wandering the nearby forest. Eren tells Mikasa that he heard her mother is meaning, to which Mikasa confirms and says her mother believes it to be a boy. He then reveals to her his hope to join the Scout Regiment and explore the outside world. Their conversation is cut short when they hear the bark of wild dogs that have killed a trio of travelers. Eren and Mikasa return to the sign of the zodiac and inform Dr. Jaeger and Mikasa ‘s parents of the bodies they saw .
Afterward, Dr. Jaeger began returning to check on Mikasa ‘s mother more frequently, bringing Eren with him each time. In these late visits, the two avoided the forest and played around the house.

- Eren Jaeger – Mikasa considers Eren to be her “family,” since she was taken into his home following the death of her parents. She always wears a scarf, given to her by Eren, as a token of the moment when he first wrapped it around her in an attempt to comfort her when she had first lost all hope. From the time he saved her life and accepted her into his home, Eren has been a great source of strength and comfort for her, and when she had thought him dead, she very nearly allowed herself to die as well, but kept living on to remember him. She became distraught when learning Eren had been abducted, wrapping the scarf over her face to hide her sadness. Because he is the only “family” she has left, she will go to any lengths to ensure his safety, and vows to follow him wherever he may go, stating her only wish is to remain by his side; this often results in Eren becoming annoyed whenever she becomes too protective, and telling her not to treat him like her “little brother.” Due to the intensity of her devotion to him, several people, from Ian to Jean and even Levi, are confused about the nature of their relationship. Interestingly, Mikasa only ever blushes when Eren is involved. Examples of this include her embarrassed blush when Ian mistook him for her lover during the reconquest of Trost, and Armin leaving her alone with Eren after capturing the Female Titan. When she believed that she and Eren were about to be killed by the Smiling Titan, she thanked him for everything he has done for her all this time.

Normally composed, Mikasa breaks down in tears over the decision whether or not to save Armin with the Titan injection.
- Annie Leonhart – Their relationship is implied to be some sort of rivalry. Their animosity deepens when Annie was found to be the Female Titan and was responsible for the deaths of countless soldiers and Eren’s attempted kidnapping. Things came to a peak as Mikasa became fed up with Annie’s games and called her out as the Female Titan that had attacked them. With that exposed, Mikasa stopped Annie from escaping by cutting off her fingers and forcing her to fall from the Wall.
- Jean Kirschtein – Her primary interactions with him relate to his rivalry with Eren, and it is unclear whether she is even aware of his affections for her. When he grimly admonished Eren for attacking her, Mikasa felt Jean was attempting to discredit Eren, and quickly became defensive on his behalf.
- Levi Ackermann – Their relationship began in a negative fashion, as she witnessed him beat Eren to a pulp during a military trial. She once swore to make him pay for his treatment of Eren and lashed out at him when the Female Titan managed to kidnap Eren after slaughtering Levi’s squad.

During the Titans’ assault on their hometown, she desperately tried to lift the roof beam preventing Carla from running away from the danger. Despite Carla’s pleas, she tearfully refused to leave her, and could not bring herself to watch as a Titan eventually killed and ate her.
- Hannes – It was implied that Mikasa was grateful towards Hannes for rescuing her and Eren from being killed by the Titan that ate Eren’s mother. Despite admitting to his cowardice in front of her, she did not resent him for failing to rescue Carla, and she valued him as one of the few people left with whom she shared memories of more peaceful times.
- Father and mother – Mikasa shared a loving bond with her parents, and was happy with the simple life they shared. Mikasa’s father was a kind father to Mikasa, and she was very relaxed around him.

The day a trio of bandits attacked and killed her parents in front of her, Mikasa lost all hope and believed her world had gone cold until Eren’s father decided to take her in.
- Reiner Braun and Bertholdt Hoover – While we rarely see her interact with either of them, she fails to kill them on learning their true identities suggesting that she considered them as her comrades. Later on when Bertholdt tearfully explains their plight, Mikasa appears to be cold and firmly insists on having Eren back.
